syslog servers

I'm looking into syslog server software (free versions), any recommendations?
Mostly going to be monitoring routers and switches.

It looks like all the good ones cost money and their free versions limit the number of devices.

    The Syslog daemon is free, not sure what you are asking.

    I'm asking about software that also gives you filtering and searching options.

    kiwi syslog looks interesting, but it cost money. I'm just looking to see if other people on this forum have recommendations for software that's free.

    Is there another term for this type of software?

    Setup an ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana). 100% free and you'll learn a lot in the process.

    Logstash is on my list to look into, I'll look into ELK Stack while I'm at it too.

    https://www.elastic.co/products

    There are plenty of documents on elastic.co and plenty of installation tutorials on youtube. You'd be surprised how easy this install is.
